By Dariel

To me, I feel happy if my readers have shared delicious cake recipes and exchange baking tips with me. I love the interaction with readers that have the same interest in baking too. I am a fan of banana cake and love to experiment with different recipes to search for the perfect banana cake recipe. I am so glad that one of my readers Patricia has shared her banana cake recipe with me. Finally got to try out Patricia’s recipe two weeks ago and it was a success. The banana cake is soft and fluffy in texture. Thanks for sharing Patricia!

300g Self Raising Flour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda

6. Pour the batter into baking tin and bake for about 45-55 mins (for 1 x 10 inch square pan) or 35 mins for 1 x 8 inch square pan (for half recipe)

AFTER 15 mins, reduce oven temp to 160 deg C.

If your cake top turns brown but the center is still wet, cover top loosely with foil and continue baking at lower temperature of 150 deg. c.

At the last 15-20 mins of baking, you may wish to lower to 135 deg C (depends on the cake texture and color.


Optional: sprinkle chopped walnuts and additional banana bits on top of batter. Mix/fold with spatula before baking.
